40th Anniversary Heavyweight Vinyl & Hi Res Audio Edition. Here's the edition of Ziggy Stardust everyone has been waiting for since David Bowie executed the character onstage nearly 40 years ago. Originally released through RCA Victor on June 6, 1972, Ziggy Stardust was Bowie’s fifth album, co-produced by Bowie and Ken Scott. The album eventually peaked at #5 on the UK Album Chart. Its influence is immeasurable, as it converted legions of fans, becoming the zeitgeist and a major influence on the next generation, particularly to those involved in the punk movement. Famously, Bowie killed Ziggy at his peak at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, on July 3rd, 1973. Pop music was never the same again.
Warner Vision is pleased to announce the March 24th 2003 release of the highly anticipated multi-channel DVD-Audio album retrospective from one of the greatest country recording artists, Emmylou Harris. Entitled Producer's Cut, this unique retrospective features 14 songs taken from seven of Emmylou's first eight albums for Reprise Records, plus a rare, previously unreleased duet with Johnny Cash, Old Rugged Cross, originally taken from the Roses InThe Snow recording sessions. This track is included on this DVD-A release as a special bonus track.
Amplified Gesture is a 50 minute film, to be included in the deluxe edition alongside a 5.1 stereo mix of the album. Essentially, it presents the album's participants, plus contributions from saxophonist John Butcher and AMM percussionist Eddie Prévost (who have worked with Sylvian on an installation soundtrack called When We Return You Won't Recognise Us), talking about their art under a series of chapter headers.
